The National Institute of Christian Leadership

The History of the NICL

The idea for the National Institute of Christian Leadership took root in my mind while serving as a university president nearly 20 years ago. I experimented with the concept in various iterations at two different institutions and became convinced that I could serve leaders, pastors and business people in a meaningful and significant way. Over that period of time what became the NICL took a better, clearer shape, and the material matured in sophistication in a far greater way than I even dreamed.

Your Professional Development as a Christian Leader is a Requirement for Growth!

I get the same types of questions from leaders all around the world. How do I grow my church with sustained results? How do I find and hire the right people for my team? How do I create a budget that works for my church? When is the right time to finance a building project? How do I raise funds successfully? How can we get more synergy between our preaching and worship? The NICL is where you’ll learn everything I wish someone would have taught me about business and ministry over the last 50 years. It’s my privilege to share this knowledge with you in a very practical way. You’ll be able to implement these lessons and see immediate results in your church or ministry.
